I know.... the real McCoy is supposed to be from La Paz, Iloilo. Tried that too in Iloilo but I prefer this one from Bob's. Well, they've been in business since 1965, so they must know what they're doing.
Steaming, piping hot, with that egg floating almost obscenely atop the batchoy. Smells good, without a hint that the solid meat slices are actually innards that will wreak havoc to one's uric acid levels.
The first spoonful deserves a slurp. Ang sarap! ( Really delish!) Thought I couldn't finish a bowl, but I did. Good thing I restrained myself from ordering a siopao which the oldtimer waiter repeatedly reminded me is a specialty.
Can't go wrong eating here in Bob's along Lacson Street in Bacolod City. There were 4 of us ordering 2 siopaos, 2 batchoy, dinuguan and drinks. Bill: exactly 500 pesos!
The 2nd time around, we didn't miss ordering their signature fruit punch, burger and chicken binakol. The soupy dish is a sweet version of the chicken tinola.
And there's the baby back ribs for my apo. Paired with the orange calamansi shake which was slurped away before i got to take a photo of the cold drink.
All told, Bob's certainly deserved that 2nd visit in our 3 night stay in Bacolod.
